Video: Amanda Nunes faceplant KO’s Cris Cyborg to become first female double UFC champion

Amanda Nunes is a beast… and a double champion

By Oscar Willis - 30 Dec 2018

Amanda Nunes is a bad, bad woman.

The UFC bantamweight champion moved up in weight to meet Cris Cyborg — a woman often referred to as the scariest and best female fighter in mixed martial arts — in the co-main event of UFC 232.

And with both women being known as heavy hitters, they did not disappoint. Both Cyborg and Nunes threw heat from the very opening belt, with Nunes suddenly managing to land the more decisive blows which rendered Cyborg on wobbly legs before another blow sent her to the canvas unconscious.

In doing so, she not only became the first woman to hold world titles in two divisions, but also the first to hold two simultaneously.
